Carina Nebula in the visible (top) and infrared (bottom) perspective. That's where stars are being born.

The Hubble Space Telescope is alive, well, and upgraded. Click the picture above to see 7 pretty new pictures (via BBC) or see Google News or Blog Search.

The book advertised on the left side is just one among many other books with pretty colorful photographs that the Hubble Space Telescope has produced during those years. Let me recall that the gadget should eventually be replaced by the James Webb Telescope.
